Per reports, the 21-year-old faced a slew of robbery charges after attempting to steal from a drive-thru restaurant and allegedly shooting her dog in front of her 5-year-old child.
The 21-year-old woman, later identified as Simone K., reportedly entered the drive-thru with her child and dog, attempting to purchase food. At the cashier’s window, however, she discovered that she didn’t have enough money to complete the transaction.
She began to argue with cashiers, trying to convince them to let her take the items for free. When the clerks refused, she punched one in the face and pulled out a gun. The woman then threatened to fire her weapon unless the cashiers handed over the food.
One of the clerks attempted to grab the gun and Simone fired multiple shots, killing her dog in front of her child. Nobody else was reported injured.
Police have placed the woman in custody for aggravated robbery, according to NBC4. They have determined that the gun used in the incident was stolen, and more charges may be filed in the near future. According to reports, the 21-year-old mom kept an active Twitter presence until 2013, calling the biological father a deadbeat and writing about getting high and trying to stay out of jail.
“I don’t want to go to jail.” said another tweet. “Not again!!” Dear readers, we are republishing this story amid recent reports of a surge in violent crime and robberies across America during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
